Cutting too many calories to lose weight

-fuel your body

-quality vs. quantity of food

-skipping meals/snacks is bad

 

 Falling into a FAD diet trap

-All “diets” are unrealistic long term. (80% fail rate, with weight regain)

-If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is

-Moderation is Key

 

Eating out too much

-High sodium, higher calories

-More fat, bigger portions

-Sometimes healthier choices like salads are not always best

 

 Buying foods based on the front of the product

-Fat free/Reduced fat does not mean better (we need fat, healthy fat)

-Lean Cuisine/Healthy Choice frozen dinners

-Low calorie/things loaded with artificial sweeteners

 

Getting improper exercise

-More is not always better, we need the proper intensity. “ Walking the dog is not necessarily cardio”

-Correct form and structure to avoid injury

-At least 30 minutes a day to maintain weight (ACSM guidelines)

Feed your kids like adults

-Just because they are at a healthy weight, does not mean Doritos and pop is a suitable after school snack.
